Please note: This is a past event

Launched in July 2015 and supported by Creative Skillset, the NFM Academy aims to source and place north east trainees within productions in the region, taking the pain of recruitment and paperwork away from productions and hopefully making sure finding the right trainee is easy.

Since then we have provided trainees to CBBC's Wolfblood, Sixteen Films' I, Daniel Blake and ITV's Beowulf.

Our next NFM Academy event is a networking evening for potential trainees and professional crew.  The event will begin with a panel session discussing the importance of developing the next generation of crew followed by an opportunity to network with experienced crew and trainees. 

When: Tuesday 02 February 2016. Registration from 6 pm. Starts 6.30pm; ends 10 pm.

Where: CastleGate, Melbourne Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear NE1 2JQ
